DAKINE Bronco GT Glove - 2006 BCS
DAKINE's Bronco GT glove is a perfect glove for those snowriders looking for an excellent freestyle Gore-Tex glove. The low-profile, low-bulk Bronco GT is packed with all the features you'd expect from DAKINE. These Gore-Tex gloves are guaranteed to keep your hands dry in four feet of the dry stuff—or 4 inches of Sierra cement. Super-durable rubberized palms will take all the abuse you can throw at these babies, and the midweight fleece insulation ensures that your hands are cozy as soon as they enter the glove. The nose wipe thumb panel a necessity. Lastly, the waterproof neoprene wrist cuff will keep unwanted snow from annoying you when a powder day pulls you out of the pipe.

Picked up a pair for cheap last winter to replace the pair of mitts i lost in the parking lot the day before. Took a couple laps out of bounds and shredded them from my not-too-sharp ski edges while using my skis to pull my self up a slope. two more days and these were toast.
Id look at a higher model glove, or another brand

fantastic gloves. a little too warm for some hot spring days. i usually wear just some thin liners underneath, and that keeps me nice and warm for almost all days. except for frigid conditions- 5 degrees and under + wind/snowing, these are dope. they also go on and off pretty easy compared to other gloves. Overall, good all around glove.

good warmer to maybe 15F glove. the gore tex insert isn't quite flexible enough though and it feels as though you're wearing a bag on your hands at times.
Great gloves...if you like Duct Tape
February 17, 2009
I love the weight and waterproofness of these gloves. However, the stitching on the index finger came off the first day on my first pair. Warrantied them with BC.com and the same thing happened on the second pair! Can someone say design flaw? However, I duct taped the heck out of the index fingers, and now they are good to go! Bottom line, if you have hot hands and duct tape, these are the gloves for you!

Got them in olive. The low profile looks sick and really improves dexterity (I can type with them on). They look great with my Wing Man jacket. Warm without the bulk and passed the sink test with flying colors thanks to the Gore Tex.

The stitching started to come undone right away on the finger of one glove.
BC.com took it back for a refund.
Great for spring park sessions (haven't tried it in the winter yet)
July 21, 2008
Based on recommendations from people on other websites. I got a pair of these gloves and a pair of Dakine Bronco GT gloves for my trip to Mt.Hood for some summer snowboarding. I figured the warm, wet, slushy conditions would be the perfect testing ground for these gloves (and I would probably need two pairs since virtually any glove is going to get wet in summer slush conditions). The Dakine Bronco GT were the clear winner... they were less bulky, the outer material soaked less water, the inside only got damp, and dries easier.
In comparison, the Pow Sonic Glove outer soak up water like a sponge, so much so that at the end of the day, when I squeezed it hard I could get water to squirt out of the gloves like I was crushing an orange. They were also bulkier and that inner insulation would also become heavy and waterlogged. I found the pre-curved fingers and silicone grip stuff to be overrated (I've have several spring gloves and while the silicone palm is tacky and fun in the store... you don't notice it while riding).
Your average wet but stylish glove

The Dakine Bronco glove is a low cut no thrills glove that does what it suposed to: keeps your hand warm, even when wet - which they will be, trust me.
After three months they white ones are still flashy and nice. The leather has gotten quite warn and yellowish, but I do drag my hands a lot when doing my stuff (handstands, surf turns, digging kickers - that kind of stuff) and it actually was yellowish when I got them. One of the fingers started to fall apart, but some thread and needle fixed that right up.
The sizing seams a little weird, the fingers are short and fat and the wrist big. I usually wear a size 8 glove (European size) so i got the Medium. They don't fit all that super, but I do have piano fingers.
The liner is real nice on cold days, but on warmer days when your hands get sweaty and wet from snow the lining will stick to your hands and get pulled a little out of place when removing the glove. No biggy but a little annoying.
All in all I would by the Bronco for style, not comfort.
Good spring glove
May 15, 2008
This lightweight glove is good for spring conditions and with the Gore-tex insert these gloves will keep you dry and comfy all day on the slopes.
April 14, 2008
These gloves soak up water like a sponge, the insulation level is good for spring conditions at best (if you can keep your hands from getting wet), and the wrist closure broke the first day I used them. They look good, but thats it.
Wears great tears a little easily
April 8, 2008
I love the gloves. These are my second pair but the one drawback is that the fingers tear on me for some reason. If you are a newbie and are in the snow a lot they will keep your hands drier than your rear end by the end of the day.
Not real warm
February 29, 2008
No surprises appearance-wise from website description. Used the hand measurement technique described and resultant fit was fine. Only issue to date is that hands were cold midday on MtHood in ~27-30degF calm conditions. Not wet, but cold. Using hot-hands solves this, but not a good choice as deep winter glove. No wear/quality issues yet. Low bulk makes good spring candidate.
Feel warm all the time

This glove really prevent you from the cold outside. Fit my hands well. Although some ice crystalline would stink to the middle of the hand back, it won't convey any cold into your hands. Great choice for snow activities
Bronco GT Glove

The seams ripped after about a week of use. But, at least the customer service is good. DaKine said they would send me a replacement.

These gloves are supper dope. if you want a low profile glove thats really warm in almost every condition then these are the best glove, or the best ones i've ever owned. so don't think about it just buy a pair. oh and buy them a size big cuz i have big hands and the XL's barely fit, but they do!
not a good fit
April 6, 2007
I have big hands and these were an XL but they didnt fit. They were more like a M-L maybe because of the rubber around the finger tips making it smaller than it would have been. I did get a pair of Dakine gloves XL that fit great. I think its the cut on these Broncos.
March 15, 2007
Yeah these gloves keep your hands warm but I tore 5 fingers within 5 days out.
Only gloves for me

These are the only gloves I wear when it is above 15 degrees. They aren't bulky at all. They do run a bit small and you can wash them in the machine.
Durable, but not so much warmth..
December 11, 2006
I've had these gloves for quite a while and they just never quit. They look like they're brand new, and they've taken some hits. The durability of these gloves is definitely A+ and the waterproofing is outstanding. One complaint I have is when these gloves are put to the test in below 20 degree weather; if the temp gets into the teens, it's time to grab a different pair of gloves. In my case, I've got some Burton Pinnacle XCR's that are perfect for the cold stuff. I think this is a great early- or late- season glove.
Perfect Ski Glove!
November 10, 2006
It's a Dakine to start with so, not much REALLY needs to be said, but, I seriously think it's the perfect day-to-day ski glove. It's super thin yet thick enough for most cold days, Gore-Tex and style! One heads up, the thumb all the sizes seam the be a little short. If you get a large and think "maybe a XL will be better" nope, same thumb size just bulkier around the hand? But, You'll survive.
Bronco GT glove
June 23, 2006
Durable. Rugged. Waterproof. Light. I bought these as a warm weather/spring, backcountry glove, but they are surprisingly warm. In fact, I think they will get serious wintertime duty. 3 complaints: 1.They don't really "check the box" for spring/summer backcountry glove due to warmth. 2.The XL is a bit small, and certainly smaller than other XL's I have. 3.When your hand is wet/sweaty, it tends to pull the liner out a bit, creating bunching, making it difficult to put it back on. But overall, I'm very happy. Great looking glove and very low profile at a great price. I can't wait for winter.

The glove keeps your hands warm in 30 degree temperatures and it's grippy enough for those grabs in the pipe and jumps. It's not bulky and fits easily under the jacket sleeve. Great all around glove.
Comfy Cozy & Warm
April 21, 2005
These gloves were amazing, not too bulky. Made it easy for me to get in and out of my boots when i needed to. Kept the warmth in the glove which really helped when the weather got to be like 20 degrees. So great gloves everyone should own a pair!
good for your hands
December 20, 2004
This glove likes to be used. It wants action. Fits great, solid feel, perfect flexibility and movement, and excellent for pulling those grabs. You can remove this glove with no hassle. If your fingers get cold easily, then this glove is probably not for you in the winter. It is not the warmest if you are dealing with temps below 15 degrees. Kept my hands nice and toasty in the 20+ range though. A very well rounded, functioning glove.
January 7, 2008
i got these gloves for christmas and they were great buy, they got snow in them too easy, probably because my wrist is skinny but my hand is big, then i lost one of them so that sucked, and now im lookin for over jacket wrist cover gloves, so i gave them a 4 because of the wrist problem for me, but if you have bigger wrists then you have nothing to worry about
